A new addition to Legion is what we’re calling micro-holidays. Each one is meant to make the world feel more alive without making players feel like they need to participate for big rewards—while still providing some more variety and fun.
|Date ||Event ||Description |
|January 21-23 ||Call of the Scarab ||To commemorate the first ringing of the Scarab Gong on January 23, 2006, players will be able to relive a portion of the Ahn’Qiraj gate opening by collecting items for turn-in. The winning faction will then be able to claim bragging rights and have their faction flag hang over the gates until the next Call of the Scarab micro-holiday event. |
|** ||Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl || |
**The Tavern Crawl micro-holiday has hit a few challenging technical issues. These will prevent it from starting as originally scheduled in the in-game calendar. We will update you when we know more. The mages of Azeroth like to relax, too. Hop into a portal at your local watering hole and join the Tavern Crawl!
|February 23 ||Hatching of the Hippogryphs ||Those who head to Feralas will be able to bear witness to the yearly hatching of the hippogryphs. You may even make a little friend for the day. |
|March 17-19 ||Un’goro Madness ||Dinosaurs are running amok in Un’Goro. Help quell the rampage and you’ll be awarded some temporary evolution buffs. |
|April 5 ||March of the Tadpoles ||Each year, the Winterfin murlocs allow their tadpoles free reign over their village. You can make a difference by adopting your favorite, feeding it, and protecting it from nearby predators. |
|April 28 ||Volunteer Guard Day ||Step into the shoes of a guard in the major cities with a /salute and you’ll get to serve and protect the city just like them. Stay vigilant and watch out for any invaders. |
|May 10-12 ||Spring Balloon Festival ||Several of Azeroth’s characters – some of whom you might recognize – are giving tours of Azeroth in their hot air balloons. You’ll enjoy their commentary and interact with other citizens as you take in the scenery. |
|May 27 ||Glowcap Festival ||Head to Sporeggar in Zangarmarsh, collect some rare mushrooms, and help the sporelings heal the great mushroom, Fshoo. You’ll gain a bit of Sporeggar reputation for helping them out. |
|June 6-8 ||Thousand Boat Bash ||Thousand Needles is where the biggest bash on boats can be found in Azeroth. It’s a chance to unwind a little, away from the lurking danger of the Burning Legion. |
These holidays are just the beginning and we’ll be adding more even beyond the patch so keep an eye on the calendar!
